Mudavadi seeks political support from Mt. Kenya region

Amani National Congress (ANC) Party leader Musalia Mudavadi will continue engaging people from the central region with a view to getting support for his presidential bid come 2022.

Speaking in Murang’a Saturday after meeting a section of political leaders from the region, Mudavadi said for one to win the presidential vote he has to get support from almost every part of the country.

The ANC party leader underscored the need to have a vision for the nation, which would propel the economy, promote unity, enhance national security and enable creation of jobs for millions of young people.

“I am seeking the mandate of Kenyan people to lead them through a democratic process and I will be engaging many more communities and rally them towards a common vision as on Kenya,” he said.

The former vice president added that there must be a common thread to unite Kenyans towards growing the economy of the nation.

“We must have critical issues binding us so that as 47 counties we may share a common vision. This will only be achieved through a well-structured national discourse aimed at capturing aspirations of the majority of Kenyans,” said the ANC leader.

At the same time, Mudavadi appealed to Kenyans to move away from corrosive politics and embrace peace and open discussions which will see the country go for visionary leaders.

He further said discussions at One Kenya Alliance which bring together Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wateng’ula and KANU leader Gideon Moi are at the preliminary stage and in near future there will be more alliances and coalitions.

“As we move closer to elections, expect more alliances as we are bringing on board other leaders with similar opinions to help us in forming an all-inclusive government which will help move this country from its current socio-economic challenges,” he added.

Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala who attended the forum appealed to residents of Mount Kenya region to support the ANC party leader in his presidential candidacy.

The senator said Mudavadi is well placed to lead the country and help in its economic recovery and ensure national unity.

His sentiments were echoed by Nairobi Senator Jackson Sakaja who said the country needs a visionary leader to help in recovery of the ailing economy.

Local leaders who met Mudavadi included former legislators Peter Kamande (Maragua), Humphrey Kimani (Gatanga) and Mutava Musyimi formerly of Gachoka constituency in Embu county.

They said they will continue to engage other leaders as they prepare for next general elections.
